, the former redevelopment agency and now oci to move forward to collect tax increments and fulfill that housing information and that's an informational item related to preference. to both of these items are on your agenda. i like to ask deputy director jim to present this item. >> chair johnson, members of the commissioner, my name is jim, deputy director at the successor agency as director bohe indicated the issue before you is getting the state department of finance to determine that the housing obligation exists for housing that was destroyed before 1976. by a way of background to talk about how this sits within dissolution law, i wanted to go over the highlights. so we know at this point in the 20th month of dissolution, that enforceable obligations are the key to what is the agenda for successor agencies. we know that the dissolution law, although it requires successor agencies to wind down as quickly as possible allows activities to continue if they further preexisting enforceable obligations. we also know that in designing enforceable obligations and what can be spent f
times are among the highest in the country and let's not forget that taxes and spending in recent years to support the plan are under governor duval patrick have gone up substantially. we'll look at more of the claims by president obama in just a moment, but first, president obama now not the only one stonewalling for his health care plan. secretary secretary kathleen sebelius trying to get some answers about the disastrous obama care rollout. nbc news steve handelsman joins us. >> part of the parade of horribles as president obama calls it is millions of americans losing their health care and that's happening here on capitol hill, obama hhs secretary kathleen sebelius says blame insurance companies for millionses of americans getting lers and emails that they're getting dropped. republicans said president obama, with the help of kathleen sebelius, won reelection promising that if you like your health care coverage, if you like your insurance, if you like your doctor you can keep them. that, said a republican, amounts to political deception. >> millions of individuals who by listening t
of obamacare under congress' general taxing power. the court noted specifically that, quote, even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. mr. speaker, i want to read that one more time. even if the taxing power enables congress to impose a tax on not obtaining health insurance, any tax must still comply with other requirements in the constitution, unquote. in short, mr. speaker, obamacare was upheld as a tax. the supreme court did not and has not yet considered a challenge to the affordable care act's taxing provisions on the grounds that it violated the origination clause in the united states constitution. and, mr. speaker, it most certainly did exactly that. mr. speaker, the origination clause is found in article 1, section 7 of the constitution. and it states, quote, all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the house of representatives, unquote. in creating obamacare, senator harry reid took an entirely unrelated bill, h.r. 3590, containing just 714 words, a
except for the enforceable obligations, the major projects we still have, where is the tax increment supposed to come from to build the housing obligations and where can the projects be built? >> with regard to the source of the tax increment, it's limited to those limits plans that was amended. we're talking about income point south beach, western edition a2, golden gateway. those are the most significant generateers of property tax revenue. and the housing can be built anywhere in the city under the replacement housing obligation. the one for replacement -- the law allows for the housing to be built in the former agency. >> second question. so i was looking through all of the documents and they don't actually have -- i'm sure it changes overtime -- affordable level when we talk about moderate income level, are those levels paid to anything anywhere? >> first of all, the housing has to meet the community standards for affordable housing which generally is under 120 percent of income. s p2113 has an additional requirement that 50 percent of the housing that would be completed ha
like to go to a party with some of those people? >> maybe not. but we work hard and send our tax money in and waste is the way sebelius and the rest of the bozos. >> from the chairman on down on the republican side except for ryan i have yet to see one that -- >> they put this website online october 1st and it wasn't ready and spent a lot of americans' tax money doing it. >> i'm not for it. >> should have had a nice afternoon on the hill today? >> no, but have some people with intelligence asking some questions. >> this is the thing you pointed out early are. sebelius frustration caught on a hot mike. >> i have a unanimous consent request. i'd like -- madam secretary -- >> don't do this to me. >> is she referring to her staff trying to give her something at the time? i can understand that. like if the producer would be yelling something in your ear right now, which he's not. what are you doing to me? i got this. i can handle it. i do think that if you were just coming in to watch the hearing, you're dipping in and out as an american, you're listening to this, you want her to be able to
, but the prospect of raising taxes remains a sticking point. >> simply taking more from the hard-working families of america just isn't the answer. i know my republican colleagues feel the same. so i want to say this from the get-go. if we look at this conference as an argument about taxes, we're not going to get anywhere. the way to raise revenue from our perspective is to grow the economy, to get people back to work. >> compromise runs both ways. while we scour programs to find responsible savings, republicans are also going to have to work with us to scour the bloated tax code and close some wasteful tax loopholes and special interest subsidies because it is unfair and unacceptable to ask seniors and families to bear this burden alone. >> ifill: the committee has until december 13 to hammer out an agreement. otherwise, the next round of cuts will kick in next year. we'll have more on this, later in the program. there's word that the national the deficit ran $680 billion -l last month. the first time red ink has fallen below a trillion dollars in five years. today's report said revenues rose by
plan comes out, for example, if your insurance is do gotoo good, you have to pay a tax, i had people come up and say i have to dpay tax on my insurance because it is too good for obama care. >> now, others have joined in. they introduced the, if you like your plan, you can keep your plan act. is that going to go anywhere? >> well, i support it. what it is doing, with these crazy rules saying if your insurance is good, you can keep it. they slid this one word in, saying if your insurance changes from the time obama care is passed, you lose your insurance. they slipped it in because they want you to be on one of four government choices. there used to be hundreds and hundreds of insurance choices in our country, there will now be four. even if they tell you there are 20 different insurance exchanges in one plan, there are still only four choices. they're only allowed to sell four choices. this is really the taking of your freedom. when ken churuccinelli talks ab it, he says this is a choice. >> i think they figured out there were 19 million fewer people that could be in the exchanges. a
with a blue cross silver atmo plan with tax credits, in that case, instead of $800 a month, it's $77 a month. and let me refer you to the interview on "meet the press" with the blue cross florida ceo. he was asked by david gregory, in florida, the oldest and largest health care plan provider, florida blue cross, confirmed it is cutting 300,000 policies. and this is what the chairman of blue cross of florida said, "we're not cutting people, and i quote, we're actually transitioning people. what we've been doing is informing folks that their plan doesn't meet the test of the essential health benefits. therefore, they have a choice of many options that we make available through the exchange, and, in fact, with subsidy, many people will be getting better plans at a lesser cost." so this has become a matter of legitimate discussion, and i think all of us would appreciate your addressing it. >> sir, again, going back to prior to the affordable care act days, these individuals in a small group or individual market had no protections. they had no guarantees of coverage, and they were still being cha
